Donald F. Waterman, 54, of Warwick passed away unexpectedly at home on Monday, March 11th. He was the devoted husband of Rosemary (Dias) Waterman for 25 years and the proud father of Madison Waterman.
Born in Providence, Don was the son of the late Clinton F. & Roberta F. (Riley) Waterman. He is survived by his siblings, Charles Waterman and his wife Nancy, Patricia Waterman Shea and her fiancé James Fochler, Jean August and Henry August, Barbara Waterman, and Lee Waterman and his wife Lori. Don also leaves behind many nieces and nephews whom he loved unconditionally. He had many friends who will miss him dearly.
Don was retired from the Providence Fire Department and spent most of his time helping family and friends with any and every project they were working on. He was a true jack of all trades. Through the years, Don had many German Shepards, most recently his beloved Mia who sadly passed last summer. He loved boating and fishing and took great pride in his annual 4th of the July barbecue and fireworks display. Don will be missed immensely by all who knew him.
Calling hours will be Saturday 11-2pm with a memorial service at 2pm at Jones-Walton Sheridan Funeral Home, 1895 Broad St Cranston. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Donald's memory to Homes for Our Troops, 6 Main St. Taunton MA, 02780.
